TRANSPORT WORKERS STRIKE CONTINUES
FIRE all these striking truck drivers and employ new drivers. People are waiting to fill those posts.
TRANSPORT strikers should not be able to get food at any food stores until after the strike is over.
DANCING around like puppets, singing inane songs – is this the way to attract foreign investments? To rule a country? What sort of people are these? What respect can taxpayers have for people who say they are South Africans and then try to destroy its economy? Do they have any brains? Do they respect South Africa?
LOCATE the instigators and fire them. There are drivers available who want jobs.
ANC DIVISIONS AHEAD OF MANGAUNG
NOW it shows that Nceba Faku has no interest in building the ANC. He is focused on destroying it and community interest.
YOU are ill-disciplined, Faku. You don't respect the country's president.
THE October 4 front page: with this photo of the prez, I agree with Faku.
NCEBA's fist must still be aching from the dent he put into the African National Corruption's already tarnished image. The Bay's elderly Juju.
THE ANC will blame apartheid, blame whites, the opposition, colonialists, the weather, a third force, etc. Easy to blame, and sit on bums and do nothing.
WHY DO PROTEAS 'CHOKE' IN BIG EVENTS?
WHY do the Proteas "choke" in T20 World Cups but manage to put on great display in IPL as individuals? No pride in the South African shirt perhaps (or CSA for that matter)?
IF these are the best cricketers and ANC politicians we have, I'd hate to meet the rest. PS The Boks need a kicker.
MADNESS CONTINUES IN ZIMBABWE
THE Zimbabwe madness continues: teachers paid $2 a month and renewed violent farm invasions.
TONY FOWLER, WALMER, PORT ELIZABETH
I CAN'T agree more with M Phillips. The rape sentence outweighs the crime. He has stated very good points that everyone is thinking. We are all for you, Iain.
PLEASE wake up, M Phillips. Rape is rape at any age.
DC, why would you want Iain's sentence increased? Where you there? I do not believe the British girl was drunk on two glasses of wine and one shooter. Iain has been framed!
COPS USING VEHICLES FOR OWN SHOPPING
RECENTLY at Fruit and Veg City in Newton Park, I saw seven uniformed cops shopping. Two vans were parked outside.
POLICE van as taxi: around 4pm on October 3 it was picking up a woman in civilian clothing at the Korsten taxi rank, with blue lights flashing. Shame.
KINGS SIGN UP NEW PLAYERS
"WE negotiated in a lean way" (Anele Pamba from the Kings), meaning: "We bought from the reject shelves".

IN Mike Oettle's world, English becomes African, people walk on water and virgins give birth. Hats off to you.
